I've been rushing around between holiday, new grandson (first grandchild :) ) and the start of a new term so lessons to prepare and names to learn so not much painting happening apart from sketches on holiday.

This is a sketch of a tree paeony from my garden.

c&c welcome

Very pretty colors and great depth. Color pencils? What is the size? I also like the blue touches.

Thank you.

thanks :)

it's quite small in a little sketchbook so it's only about 5/6 inches or the size you maybe see it onscreen. I don't have the patience for large CP works! I use paint if I work bigger.

Ooo, those blue lines have great textural interest.

oh, I love this, Vivien!

My favorite? the squiggly suggestions of the edges of the petals... Will you be doing this larger & in a different medium? (hope so!)

I do plan to do a very large canvas - but it isn't going to be done in the near future as I want to get some seascapes done based on the sketches and photographs done during a week staying right on the edge of a beautiful beach with fantastic sunsets (you can see these on my blog) and I really want to get some canvasses done. They will also fit in with the seascapes I did over the summer for upcoming exhibitions.

I need more hands and more time!

I do like these working drawings of yours Vivien - all the hatching and squiggles - they have life!

Maureen when I can get on with it that's what I want to do - some huge canvasses :)
